1920 Vibroplex Original – “The River of Doubt Bug”

 

First the River of doubt bug.  If you haven’t read the fascinating story about this 1920 Vibroplex Original bug; it’s a must read!  The significant and well documented history about this key, the original owner and the treacherous journey he undertook is unprecedented.  I have started an article that I hope to have published later.  For now, you get a sneak peak at it.  This key has yet to be added to the Key Collection.  For now it’s information and the Draft Article are linked up in the Featured Articles section.

I also added to the Featured Articles a reprint of a post I made on the Straight Key Century Club (SKCC) forum back in 2009.  It’s related to an alternate method for head copy of CW I call ‘The Phonic Method’.   If you’re into conversational CW and head copy, this will be an intriguing read. I’ve expanded the article to include information on how to go about learning the Phonic Method.   If interested, please have a look and provide feedback.

More keys coming soon to the Key Collection.  Please check back often!
